How to Report Wage & Hour Violations

If your employer failed to provide the compensation you deserve for your work, you can report a wage violation under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). You can file a complaint in person or by mail.

Wage and hour violation complaints should go to the (WHD) Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor and should include:

  • When the violation occurred (specific dates, if possible)
  • A general description of the violation
  • Information about the employee’s pay, method of payment, and regularity of payment
  • Description of employee’s work/job title
  • Contact information for the employer (name, phone number, address, etc.)
  • Employee’s information (address, phone number, name)

After you contact the WHD, it reviews the complaint and investigates the claim. If the WHD determines that the employer denied the employee pay, it may help him/her recover compensation.

In some cases, the WHD needs additional information from the complainant to pursue an allegation against the employer. If possible, prepare as much information about the situation as possible. This will help the WHD act quickly and effectively so you can pursue the wages you deserve.

Why You Need a Wage & Hour Violations Attorney

Filing a wage and hour violation claim isn’t easy. In fact, the WHD often demands a daunting amount of information and paperwork. If you’re considering a wage and hour dispute with your employer, speak with a member of our firm today.
